I've been here a few times and until tonight I had a pleasant time. The pizza was amazing even though it takes forever. A roach crawled across our table and that really killed the mood. Don't think that I will be back.

The atmosphere here - with the friendly greetings from the staff and the warm fire from the pizza oven - is extremely inviting and welcoming. There are so many things on the menu I wanted to try, I wish I weren't just traveling through. The Mediterranean pizza, Pesto Grilled Chicken Panini, and Cooper River Golden Ale were all fantastic and... More

My partner and dog and I had just settled into the Beaufort Inn so we met my sister and brother-in-law (Beaufort locals) who took us to dinner here. The she-crab soup (a Lowcountry delicacy) was delicious (even better than what we had had in Charleston a few years earlier) and I enjoyed my Mediterranean flat-bread pizza and local hard cider.

We had a party of 11 and the restaurant was pretty full. They took my name & number and we went & looked in the shops & had the kids run around in the park. They called when our table was ready. We had several vegetarians in our group. They have several options. The flatbread/pizza was great. My husband had... More

this is/was the absolute last time we will frequent Panini's. This reviewer has repeatedly said that the She crab soup is par excellence... and we will maintain our stance heretofore... BUT with reference to the rest..... SKIP it and get the She crab soup .... TO GO

We had lunch here on an unseasonably cold day, so the she-crab soup was a real treat. Our sandwiches were very good and the service was friendly and attentive. Probably a better warm weather venue, with what looks like a really nice patio seating area on the water.

My wife had the small tuscan pizza, and I had the sausage hoagie. Originally from CT where Mom & Pop Pizza Restaurants out do chains. The lunch we ate to day was wonderful. It was too cold and windy to eat outside, but the food was GREAT. We Highly recommend this Restaurant in Historic Beaufort, SC.

The atmosphere in Panini's is great -- huge arched windows, a big copper-hooded oven, and an inviting back porch with water views. The service and food, however, are less impressive. Our server was pleasant but made several mistakes with our order, and once we got our drinks and food, they were average in quality (and in fact below-average based on... More
